    And more terrifying implications from this terrible decision:

    I’m wondering: supposedly the SCOTUS says I have first amendment rights to call myself a counselor and force someone to talk to me. Can I ‘say’ what I want to a gun nut carrying a gun into Arby’s? Who has more important rights: the 2nd amendment nut who will blow me away, and maybe a grandma and a few kids behind me because I ‘threatened’ him by forcing him to ‘engage’ me? Or do my first amendment rights to ‘engage’ this person trump his 2nd amendment rights?

    Maybe I just wanted to ‘counsel’ him on the dangers he imposes on the General Welfare.

    This sucks. And what the hell made this a unanimous decision?

    What the hell is going on here?

    The anti-abortion nuts could scream from a certain distance at a miserable 18 year old as she makes a difficult decision as she exercises her rights to a private decision.

      It’s appalling, to say the least, and especially – as you mention – for the younger, traumatized woman trying to visit the clinic under a veil of privacy.

      Anybody remember “The Scarlet Letter”? Will women in this predicament have to walk around with a scarlet “A” pinned to their clothing, next? What say you, SCOTUS?

      Maybe the people that are there to protect the women entering the clinics should start wearing AR-15’s slung over their shoulders

    GEEZ…I guess President Obama invented the World Cup series – back in the 1930s and 30 years before he was born. Okay…got it…

      Americans are Genuinely Looking for something to CHEER for as a Country.

      Those 23 awesome WC Team are showing Team effort and they are making Us proud!

      Those who fail to understand that…….especially this Quack doc, he should be ashamed of himself.

        This is awesome. I am so glad USA went through. Been engaging in friendly banter with my England supporting neighbor. We both had our team flags out and to begin with he was joking that my flag would be the first to come down. When England went out his came down. Just a few minutes ago we saw each other and he was genuinely pleased that USA want through. He has now asked if I have a spare US flag! Go USA!

        Well said, Nena! Surely there has to be times, like the Olympics, Soccer World Cup, etc., when we put politics aside and cheer our hard working athletes who are representing our country on the world stage.

      Wasn’t it nice of the World Cup to scramble and come up with this new idea for a soccer (football) tourney to distract from Benghazi?

    • June 26, 2014 at 4:32 pm

      I think it is the other way around…… our foreign comrades are apparently having ‘distractions’ !!!

    I agree with PBO—-gophers are cool. :) Also clever and brilliant, which I won’t prove unless someone begs me. :)

    In 2012 the NAACP turned out an historic 1.2 Million voters and registered a record 432,000 new voters. Please join me in asking them to renew that effort again this year.

    Yea Minneapolis people! Those were some great questions and answers. Did POTUS answer the last question about possible relief from pay freezes on government workers? I wasn’t able to hear it all but didn’t think I heard a direct answer to that.

    Ok. Caught the very end of the Town Hall. Looking forward to seeing the whole thing. I’m sitting here crying because his wrapup was so poignant; WE MUST GIVE HIM A WORKING CONGRESS IN 2014!

    Back from the vet: kitty has old age, arthritis, as well as her kidney disease, but also a respiratory disorder, possibly asthma, but was treated for possible bronchitis. Similar to last fall, she was treated with an antibiotic injection, and responded well, so fingers crossed she will perk up in a couple days. Thank you everyone. Thank you. :)
